To Dance

Yesterday evening, I did some tap dancing in the gym on the stage with a companion of mine.  I am so beyond rusty!  Anyways, last night before Iwent to bed I wrote this poem.

To dance is to express

To express is to create

To create is to release

To release is to relax

To relax is to reflect

To reflect is to see

To see is to be open

To be open is to love

To love is to energize

To energize is to dance

We Are In This Together

Some words enter my mind

Many feelings float about

Something very different

Seperated from the rest

And yet, can’t you see it

Connecting thread the same

One in the journey here

Where are you now going

It is forgotten, one thing

Being with others, community

Individual discernment, yes

With support, do not forget

Indeed we are different

Not to forget the same

Just relax, simply enjoy

We are in this together

A Simple Glorious Day

Yesterday was a wonderful day of ease and rest and amazing-ness.  Here is how it was.

The day started with a natural rising.  Basically it never happens and it means we wake as our bodies allow us.  I did set my alarm for 11 because I wanted to get up for lunch.  Needless to say, being used to getting up at an earlier time, I wole many times finally arising from the bed around 9:45am.  It was great and I was well rested.

The morning consisted of some organizing and reading, allowing for time to relax or get moving on work that needs to be done.  I personally did a little reading and organizing.  Slow paced and quiet was the morning for us. 

The afternoon was a easy lunch and a meeting to discuss the weekend.  Very simple, which I liked.  We pack up our sack lunches to go for the evening on the road.  When the meeting was done, I headed up to take a shower so that I felt a little more alive for the mass and seeing Don Bosco.

We boarded the bus, sisters and novices and us, to head out around 4pm.  Eating dinner on the bus, we were preparing for the viewing of Don Bosco.  Once we got there, the bus parked, bathroom stops made, and into the Cathedral…you will never guess where we were sitting!  Two rows from the relic of Don Bosco, right there in front of us for the whole mass.  Megan and I were next to each other and just beaming smiles the entire time.  She had Ana’s camera and took a few pictures, which I loved!  We touched our medals to the glass and it was wonderful.

On the way out, we had to be creative in our exits.  The provincial had to climb over soemthing in order to get out, as did I.  It was priceless! 

Leaving the mass and heading out full of energy, I ran into someone on the corner.  Britany/Polka, who I worked with at camp in 2008!  She spotted me, and I was like, no way!  🙂  It was so amazing, esspecially since I was talking about and thinking about camp the whole bus ride there.  I loved seeing here, even if only for a short while.

On the ride home, many of us were singing songs, nearly the whole ride.  Loved it.  Let me tell you, it is a day we will never forget!
